Neonode (www.neonode.com) enjoys hot sales of its world’s first ultra-low power single-chip optical touch controller, NN1001 developed in close cooperation between Neonode® and Texas Instruments (TI).
The NN1001 is specifically designed to reduce the bill of materials (BOM) cost, increase performance and add functionality for optical touch controller customers in a variety of end markets including smartphones, tablets, e-books and automotive. TI’s high-performance, efficient analog signal chain and power management technologies and integration capabilities enable the ultra-low power and low noise in an integrated single-chip solution.
The NN1001 controller has a high scanning speed of 1000 Hz (latency down to 1 ms) and consumes less than 1mW at 100Hz, which has the potential to outperform most touch solutions on the current market. With high accuracy, NN1001 tracks any high-speed multi-touch gesture with any object (finger, gloved finger and passive pens).
It connects to any microcontroller or application processor with a high-speed SPI interface. The controller works in single or multiple configurations to support screen sizes up to 20 inches.
The controller supports advanced power management functions for low-power mobile devices and implements Neonode®’s AlwaysONTM technology where the touch can be active to detect gestures and touches even when the device application processor is in sleep or off mode.
